Huffman said he suspected another man, a mutual acquaintance stole the dog, and fled with him to Mexico. Huffman said he was resigned to losing the dog forever, when he received an unexpected phone call from someone in Missouri two weeks ago. Topper had been located when a police officer, trying to arrest a homeless woman in Kansas City, Missouri encountered the dog, who tried to nip the officer in the knee. Fortunately, Topper had a microchip which provided the information to locate Huffman in California. From there, a network of volunteers jumped in, to bring Topper home. More than a dozen volunteers took turns, each driving 200 mile segments across six states, taking the dog through MIssouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and finally, Arizona. From Phoenix, the dog was put on a plane to Riverside County, where a final set of drivers brought Topper back to Huffman’s home in El Cajon on Sunday afternoon. Huffman called it “a miracle.” HIs mother, Roderica praised the network of volunteers. “There’s a lot of people with great hearts. The time and the effort it took to coordinate all of this, it boggles my mind,” Huffman said.

Colorware Editor’s note: Apple has unveiled a refreshed version of the AirPods with a new H1 chip and a wireless charging option that costs extra. Read the AirPods 2019 review.If you’re in the market for Apple’s AirPods — or another pair of truly wireless headphones — you may want to wait a bit. Apple’s is expected to release a new set of AirPods, mostly like called the AirPods 2, this year and possibly as soon as March 25, when it’s scheduled to host a special event at the Steve Jobs Theater on its Cupertino campus.Word is the company will use the event to unveil a host of new digital services — including, possibly, a new TV streaming service and an updated version of Apple News that builds on its recent acquisition of Texture. But there’s always a chance it could sneak in some hardware announcements — like new iPads and those much-anticipated AirPods 2.Here’s a quick roundup of all the latest AirPods 2 chatter. To be clear, all these rumors are unconfirmed and Apple doesn’t respond to questions about unannounced products, so take this all with a grain of salt.Read more: Best fully wireless headphonesRumored design updatesNew colors: Some sites are claiming that the AirPods 2 will come in black and possibly other colors. Aside from that, the AirPods 2 will allegedly look nearly identical to the original AirPods.New grippier finish: The new buds could have a new soft-touch coating with a subtle grip to it that helps the AirPods 2 stay in people’s ears more securely (see posts by MySmartPrice, Economic Daily News). This would be a key and welcome upgrade that seems too good to be true.Rumored feature updates (likely)Always-on voice-control: No need to double tap on a bud, just say “Hey, Siri” to activate Siri. There’s consensus among Apple watchers that this feature will be added and 9to5Mac recently discovered that iOS 12.2 includes ‘Hey Siri’ setup interface for the rumored AirPods 2.Wireless charging: The long-awaited and already announced AirPods wireless charging case will almost assuredly be included with the AirPods 2 — possibly alongside the long-delayed AirPower charger.Upgraded Bluetooth connectivity: As a report from Bloomberg suggested last year, Apple is expected to upgrade the new AirPods with a new W2 chip with Bluetooth 5.0 support. The current AirPods support Bluetooth 4.2. Improved bass performance: Tweaks to the AirPods’ internal design will supposedly improve the bass (see MySmartPrice post). The lack of bass is a weakness with the current AirPods, so it wouldn’t be surprising for Apple to have engineered the next AirPods to sound a little better.Better battery life: Some have suggested the wireless chip upgrades could mean the AirPods will be come more energy efficient and be able to eke out more battery life. I wouldn’t expect a big bump, but an extra hour or so would seem doable.Improved water-resistance: That same Bloomberg report said Apple was looking to make the new AirPods more water-resistant. Apple doesn’t state exactly how water-resistant the current AirPods are, but plenty of people run with them (and sweat on them) without a problem already. ahastyle-earbuds-earhooksEnlarge ImageThis accessory helps not only helps keep the current AirPods in your ears but it improves the AirPods bass performance. David Carnoy/CNET Rumored feature updates (less likely)”Wellness” monitoring: It’s unclear just what these monitoring features might end up being — or what sensors Apple might add — but this rumor has been making the rounds ever since Apple was granted a patent in July of 2017 for future AirPods biometric sensors. The Jabra Elite Active 65t has a motion sensor for tracking fitness performance, but Apple’s biometric patents appear to be more sophisticated.   Noise control: One of the AirPod’s downsides is that their open design allows a lot of sound to leak in from the outside world, which has a major impact on sound quality in noisy environments. That aforementioned Bloomberg report from last year also hinted the next-generation AirPods could feature some sort of noise-cancelling element. Now there’s talk of this feature appearing in the third-gen AirPods, which would also include better water-resistance and perhaps those biometric sensors. That model would potentially be larger and wouldn’t come out till 2020, according to speculation from respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.  Rumored pricingMySmartPrice, which doesn’t have the greatest track record with rumors, reported that the AirPods 2 would cost more — around $200.However, others suggest the AirPods 2 will costs $160 — or the same as the original AirPods. I personally think the price will remain the same. With all the new true wireless competitors out there, it would be a mistake for Apple to raise the price. Latest AirPods 2 news and rumorsMarch 14: Taiwan-based Digitimes, which keeps tabs on companies that make components for Apple products, claims the AirPods 2 are set for mass production and will be unveiled at Apple’s March 25 event, according to its sources. Digitimes has been wrong in the past.Feb. 12: Popular tech leaker @OnLeaks says that the AirPods 2 will launch this fall and come in new colors, according to a “new and yet unconfirmed but seemingly reliable source.” @OnLeaks predicts that Apple will launch the new AirPods wireless charging case “soon” but that it will ship with current AirPods, not upcoming AirPods 2.

Hasinas meeting with president over SC verdict condemnable BNP

first_imgThe BNP has described Wednesday’s meeting of the prime minister, the law minister and the attorney general with president Abdul Hamid on the Supreme Court’s verdict annulling 16th amendment to the constitution as an ‘unprecedented incident’, reports UNB.The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, on Thursday condemned and protest at the ‘incident’ of this meeting between the heads of the state and the government.Addressing a discussion, the BNP leader accused the Awami League government of indulging in anti-state activities by openly taking a stance against the judiciary and chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.“The prime minister together with the law minister and the attorney general met the president yesterday (Wednesday), and discussed the Supreme Court’s verdict that cancelled the 16th amendment to the constitution. This meeting has made the entire nation deeply worried. Such a meeting can’t be held, it is an unprecedented matter,” he said.Fakhrul added, “They’ve met the president taking an opposite stance against the Supreme Court verdict. We strongly condemn and protest the incident.”Barrister Salam Talukder Smrity Sangsad organised the programme at Jatiya Press Club, marking the 18th death anniversary of BNP’s former secretary general Abdus Salam Talukder.The BNP secretary general alleged that the government is hatching a plot to snatch the independence of the judiciary.He said Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader met the chief justice at his residence earlier and took dinner there after the verdict, while “ministers are passing offensive remarks about the chief justice. What the ruling party junior leaders are saying about the apex court and the chief justice can’t be allowed in a democratic system.”The BNP, Fakhrul said, fears that the government has taken a new plot to completely destroy democracy and the independence of the judiciary. “We call upon the government to put up a strong resistance against such a move.”He urged all the political parties, democratic institutions and civil society members to come forward to protect the country, its constitution and democracy. “We all must get united to defeat the evil and undemocratic forces.”Fakhrul said though the ruling party leaders often file sedition cases against BNP leaders and activists over trivial matters, Awami League leaders are openly indulging in anti-state activities.“You’re working against the country and destroying the constitution. You shall be brought to the court of people today or tomorrow, and punished for all of your anti-state activities.”He also came down hard on law commission chairman and ex-chief justice ABM Khairul Haque for holding a press conference against the Supreme Court verdict violating his service rule.Fakhrul also alleged that Haque committed a judicial offence by changing the verdict on the 13th amendment to the constitution after going to retirement. “He should be put on trial.”He recalled the political life of Salam Talukder and his contributions towards making BNP a stronger political organisation.On 20 August in 1999, Salam Talukder died on the way to Singapore for medical treatment.last_img read more

One project cannot solve all problems of a community

first_imgNoted economist Wahiduddin Mahmud addresses the inaigural session of a two-day convention on the excluded communities in Sreemangal, Moulvibazar, on Thursday. — Photo: CollectedA convention of the excluded people in Sreemangal, Moulvibazar, on Thursday called for identifying unique problems of the marginalised communities with a view to bringing them to the mainstream.“Marginalised people are poor but the nature of their problems is not the same. So, they cannot be brought under mainstream development activities by taking only one project,” economist Wahiduddin Mahmud told the inaugural ceremony of the conference.He pointed out that the country’s 3-4 per cent people are excluded from the development process and without giving them fruits of development, it is not possible to attain overall national development goals.Wahiduddin Mahmud, a former finance adviser to the 1996 caretaker government, added that it is the responsibility of the government to take meaningful initiatives to ensure protection and development of the marginalised communities.More than 300 people of 60 communities have joined the convention and cultural festival that focussed on their lifestyle, standard of living, social crisis and cultural practices, according to a news release received in Dhaka.Power and Participation Research Centre (PPCR), Society for Environment and Human Development (SEHD), Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh (CCDB) and Gram Bikash Kendra organised the two-day convention titled ‘Social, Economic, and Political Protection of Marginalised and Excluded Communities’.PPARC executive chairman Hossain Zillur Rahman said the convention is aimed at making policy recommendations so that the government can take necessary steps to improve the situation. “We want to help create such an atmosphere,” he said.Vice chancellor of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology Farid Uddin Ahmed criticised the practice of keeping marginalised groups such as tea workers poor for the sake of an industry.“We all have to work together to take the society forward and uphold the spirit of humanity,” he added.SEHD’s Phillip Gain presented the keynote at the convention which was also addressed by writer Harishanker Jaladas, former director general of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics Abdul Wazed, and deputy commissioner of Moulvibazar Tafael Islam.last_img read more

Sedition pleas against Priya Saha dismissed

first_imgPriya Saha raises allegations of minority repression in Bangladesh during a meeting with US president Donald Trump. Photo: Collected.Two sedition pleas filed here against Priya Saha, who raised allegations of minority repression in Bangladesh during a meeting with US president Donald Trump, were dismissed hours after filing of those on Sunday, reports UNB.Lawyer Syed Sayedul Haque Suman and Ibrahim Khalil filed the pleas with separate magistrate courts on Sunday morning which were dismissed in the afternoon as it requires permission from the ministry of home affairs.Meanwhile, Khulna district Awami League general secretary Md Kamruzzaman Jamal and Modon Kumar Saha moved the court seeking permission to file sedition cases against her.Khulna metropolitan magistrate Md Amirul Islam listened to them and said the sedition complaints have been kept for hearing as it needs permission from the home ministry.Priya Saha complained to Trump that 37 million Hindus, Buddhists and Christians had disappeared from Bangladesh and that her home was torched and her land grabbed by Muslim fundamentalists.Bangladesh strongly condemned the allegations. The government on Saturday said there appears to be an ulterior motive behind Priya Saha’s false and concocted stories aimed at maligning Bangladesh.last_img read more

A Neighborhood In West Houston Hopes To Encourage Commuters To Do Things

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: – / 7If your commute this morning was a slow crawl down the freeway,  Louis Jullien probably beat you to the office.“I like to tell people it’s six minutes from door to desk,” says Jullien. “So it’s a brisk commute.”Jullien lives out in west Houston in the Westchase District, in an apartment nestled between the steel and glass office towers.He works at the district’s office near Richmond and Beltway 8. And he gets there on foot.“So I kind of cut through these two tall buildings over here,” Jullien explains. “You’ve got NOV Tower and then there’s 10333 Richmond over there. And I kind of cut through the back.”According to a recent survey, Jullien is part of a tiny minority. The Westchase District has over 30,000 residents, but only about 1 percent walk to work.That’s compared to over 80 percent of the district’s workers who drive by themselves, like most commuters in Houston. And that’s a lot of vehicles. Over 88,000 people work in the district.But what do the numbers say about bike commuting in Westchase? Even fewer people do that, less than 1 percent.We spoke with Blair Johnson, a health and wellness consultant who lives in a neighborhood just off Wilcrest. She’s an enthusiastic cyclist but she says she prefers to drive her bike to a trail, rather than get out on the streets.“I am a nervous Nellie. I am the one that rides with all the protection, the hat and all that,” says Johnson. “I get out there and I get very nervous, because the cars are too close and the condition of the road.”So in a bustling business district that was built for cars, how do you get people to try something else? The Westchase District is proposing a long list of ideas in its new Bike/Pedestrian plan.To see what’s happening right now in  Westchase, we hop in the car with Irma Sanchez. She’s the district’s Vice-President of Projects.Our destination is the new Brays Bayou Connector Trail, a route that links the current Library Loop Trail with the Brays Bayou Trail. The connector runs a couple of miles along a drainage easement and it also allows access to Metro’s Westchase Park and Ride.The new trail is expected to open later this spring. The cost was about $4 million, with much of the money coming from the Federal Transit Administration.Walkers and cyclists can stay on the trail for the entire distance. It also includes several underpasses, so cyclists won’t have to cross streets.And Sanchez agrees that’s the only way a lot of people are going to get on a bike.“The majority of our community, and I think Houston overall, they’re not quite ready yet to be riding their bicycles with traffic,” says Sanchez. The overall goal for the Westchase District is to have about 40 miles of bike routes both on street and off. The plan also calls for things like new crosswalks and improved intersections. The long-term plan is expected to cost about $58 million with the money coming from various sources.Along with reducing congestion, Sanchez hopes the improvements will help lure younger residents to the district who don’t want to drive as much. “It, in essence, will have residential destinations closer to commercial and they’ll be able to commute by walking and taking the bus,” adds Sanchez. Back out in front of the office towers, pedestrian commuter Louis Jullien says it’s a day that can’t come soon enough.“So many people complain about the traffic in Houston,” remarks Jullien. “And I’m not one of those people fortunately.”The Westchase District will soon break ground on its next project. It’s a trail along a utility right-of-way, the first of its kind in Houston. Listen 00:00 /03:33 Sharelast_img read more

Houston Teen Accepted to 20 Colleges Gets Full Rides To Each

first_imgA teen in the Third Ward will have to choose between twenty colleges this month. Lamar High School senior Micheal Brown, 17, has a full ride to each university where he applied.Brown said it was a slow build up of excitement as his acceptances started coming in last November through March. Brown will now begin visiting schools to decide which he will attend this fall. “I never imagined this would happen,” Brown said, “but I’m really happy about it.”Michael Brown celebrates his acceptance to Stanford. The 17-year-old from Houston, Texas, applied to 20 of the best universities in the US and was admitted to every single one with a full ride — and $260,000 in additional scholarship offers https://t.co/YZZdYtKOB5 pic.twitter.com/nIUB14cYjg— CNN (@CNN) March 31, 2018Trisha Cornwell is the Executive Director of EMERGE, a program Brown was involved with, since the 10th grade. The group “empowers & prepares high-performing students from underserved communities to attend and graduate from selective colleges & universities across the nation,” according to its mission statement.“We’re so excited for Micheal. He’s really a prime example of what happens when talent and preparation meet opportunity and access. And that’s what we do at EMERGE,” Cornwell told News 88.7.“Our real focus is ensuring the most talented students in Houston get the same opportunity and access as their wealthy peers from some of the most elite private schools in the city. My hope is that Micheal’s success inspires other students from his neighborhood, and neighborhoods like his across the city, to reach higher, and know they can apply to the most selective colleges across the country and get in,” Cornwell said.Brown said he has narrowed down his choices to Harvard, Princeton, Northwestern, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Georgetown, and Vanderbilt. He attributed his success to the mentors he’s had while growing up. “Especially looking forward, I think something that’s going to be important to me is like the simple idea of giving back to others the things that have been given to me,” Brown said.Brown wants to major in political science and become a lawyer or politician. He said he wants to help create change in his community, citing the election of President Barack Obama as highly influential.  Sharelast_img read more

Trump Win Leaves Mixed Emotions in DC

first_imgEven though District of Columbia leaders and some residents expressed a cautious attitude towards Donald Trump’s victory, others unapologetically proclaimed their discontent for the next president of the United States.D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said she is willing to give President-Elect Trump the benefit of the doubt. (Courtesy Photo)Trump (R) was elected on Nov. 8 even though he did not get as many votes as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D). Nevertheless, District leaders and residents are prepared to move forward and deal with the reality of a Trump administration.“I have a wait and see attitude,” former D.C. Council member Sandy Allen, who represented Ward 8 from 1996-2005, told the AFRO. “People from all over the country spoke [on Election Day]. We have to really live and with and work with their choice.”While Trump managed to get more than 270 electoral votes, he did it without the help of the District. Clinton carried the District with 93 percent of the vote, winning all of the city’s eight wards and all of its precincts.D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) worked hard to see Clinton get elected but said she is willing to work with the Trump administration. “I want to congratulate President-Elect Trump,” Bowser said on Nov. 9 at a news conference. “Many of our residents are anxious about his term in office and we will be studying his policies and programs.”The District of Columbia government participates in the inauguration of the president and Bowser said that Trump’s festivities will be no different.“I do intend to participate in the parade and we will be working with his presidential inauguration committee,” she said. “I also want the new president to know what we do in D.C.”D.C. Statehood Representative Franklin Garcia (D) said that he will work with the Trump administration, despite the sometimes hurtful tone of the billionaire during the campaign. “We are extending an olive branch to him,” Garcia told the AFRO.“We want to look at ways that we can reach common ground and try to negate the negative messages about immigrants and Latinos that he expressed during the campaign. We are cautiously optimistic that we can work with him.”Others, even though they will make the best of the situation, are still questioning how the Black community will fair.“Now, we must pick ourselves up, get back in the race on our terms, and rely on God Almighty for where we go from here,” E. Faye Williams, president of the National Coalition of Black Women said in a statement. “As Black people, we have been down before and we have worked together to find meaning for all that happens to us. Life has gone on because we are survivors.”Clinton’s loss to Trump also highlights an undertone of bias not only towards Blacks and other minorities but also towards women.“Now we face a period of uncertainty with a President-Elect who won his election that appears to have expanded the racial and gender divide in historic fashion,” said Melanie L. Campbell, president and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. “This election has revealed the unfinished business of race in America and also showed that some women, especially White women, were not ready to elect the first woman president of the United States.”Eugene Puryear, a leader with the ANSWER Coalition, wants to make it clear to Trump that not everyone will be happy to see him take the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2017.“Progressive people from all over the country will be descending on Washington, D.C. on January 20, 2017, to stage a massive demonstration along Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day,” he said.Ward 8 resident Joshua Payne said he worries that Trump will face violent retaliation before or slightly after Inauguration Day.“I think he will be assassinated before he takes the Oath of Office or within the first 100 days of being in office. I don’t wish him dead, but I do wish him out of office, even before he gets in,” he told the AFRO.D.C. Editor LaTrina Antoine and Shantella Sherman contributed to this article.last_img read more

Why the Gap Between Fashion and Tech Still Exists

Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. On September 9, Apple debuted its Watch in another attempt to close the gap between fashion and technology. The iconic tech company came out with three versions of the new device including the Watch Edition, which comes with an 18-karat gold case and may sell for as much as $5,000 according to one Apple insider.  It’s too bad the fashion world was unimpressed.Roseanne Morrison, fashion director for The Doneger Group, told Reuters that “It’s not pretty…It’s very future techno as opposed to feminine sexy.”  According to New York Magazine, models Arthur Kulkov and Alexa Chung both gave Apple Watch a thumbs down for being too dorky and toy-like. Designer Todd Snyder said, “I would never replace my Rolex for that watch.”Related: Can the Apple Watch Win the Wrist?Despite coming up short in the eyes of fashionistas, Apple still forced the fashion and tech industries to again question the conflict between style and utility. This has implications that could stretch far beyond the watch industry — if, and only if, designers are willing to take the risk of pioneering “smart fashion.” It is potentially a multibillion-dollar opportunity but there is no guarantee it will work out.With makers of textiles, handbags, jackets, shoes and jewelry now in a position to shape the future of all wearable technology, it’s worth asking two big questions: Why hasn’t fashion already seized this opportunity? And if they do enter the wearable market, how should they proceed?Why fashion remains on the sidelines. The fashion industry has a contradictory relationship with technology. Today, retailers are effectively tech companies that study and analyze shopping behavior. They have developed algorithmic personalization engines, mobile apps and social-media strategies well ahead of other industries. Yet, fashion designers have felt no competitive pressure to integrate technology into their products. This is why they remain on the sidelines.Related: Capitalizing on Fashion Week: How This Tech Accessory Company Made It to the RunwayThink about it: Why would Prada, Gucci or Burberry create “smart” digital handbags when women will already spend several thousand dollars on a single “dumb” handbag with tremendous profit margins? What would compel Giorgio Armani to make digital suits with built-in smartphone chargers and biometric sensors? Trying to force technology into high- end fashion products could backfire and alienate one of their core demographics who have not expressed demand for such features.Fashion designers aren’t expected to solve practical problems. They create demand for their products on an emotional and aesthetic level. Even the techiest among us can’t deny that fashion helps us define and represent who we are. When my wife wears a designer dress, or when my friend wears a solar-powered, smartphone-charging jacket (for real), both are expressing beliefs and values via fashion.Technology has so far failed to address the desires of people who express themselves through style rather than functionality. The Apple Watch is the best attempt so far. Likewise, fashion has failed to serve the needs of people who express themselves through functionality before appearance. So, people who value both style and function — probably the majority of consumers — are arguably underserved.Making a multibillion-dollar collaboration work.Since fashion and technology have always existed as distinct entities, unifying the two is a risk even if there appears to be a widely underserved demographic. Overcoming this divide is impossible without collaboration. To win over the elite fashion crowd, Apple and other tech companies need the sensibilities of top designers (Google recently teamed up with Diane von Furstenberg for Google Glass designs). And if fashion designers want a piece of the multibillion-dollar wearable technology market, they need the capabilities and regard for user experience that tech companies bring to the table.Related: How Russell Simmons Plans to Style and Inspire Millennials Through FashionWhile Apple may be considered a guinea pig in this new smart fashion market, the press is now speculating that Intel and other companies will try to one up Apple in the high-fashion wearable market. But many famous fashion houses are noticeably on the sidelines of this competition, with a few exceptions. Tory Burch now produces metal and silicon-printed bracelets to hide the Fitbit’s rubber bands. Ralph Lauren just launched the ‘Polo Tech’ line of athletic shirts that measure heart rate, breathing and movement. They plan to put this technology into dress shirts later in 2014.This is why there is such a huge opportunity for designers to partner with tech companies. If you’re a fashionista, would you prefer your smartwatch band to have the logo for Apple or Armani? If tech companies want wearable devices to gain acceptance with a wider audience, who could be better partners than designers who are so compelling that they convince women to buy five-figure handbags and endure the brutal discomfort of high heels?The choice before the fashion industry is simple:Partner with tech companies and take a piece of the wearable market, or let tech companies flounder with design and style. Designers could make or break the smart fashion trend. My personal hope is that design houses join in and provide those of us who love tech and fashion equally with a higher degree of self-expression and choice. Related: Talent’s Never Enough: Emerging Fashion Designers on Honing Business Savvylast_img read more

PeriscopeLike Live Video Streaming Comes to Everyday Facebook Users

first_imgDecember 4, 2015 Enroll Now for Free 2 min read The rich and famous had it first. Now everyday people have it, too. Taking aim at Twitter’s Periscope and Meerkat, Facebook is finally opening up its live video-streaming feature to everyone.The social media giant announced the move yesterday, marking the expansion of a capability first unveiled last August as part of its public-figures initiative, Facebook Mentions. Some of the first celebs cherry-picked to live stream on the world’s largest social media network include household names like Martha Stewart, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Serena Williams.“Live lets you show the people you care about what you’re seeing in real time,” Facebook product manager Vadim Lavrusik wrote on his Facebook wall. “Whether you’re visiting a new place, cooking your favorite recipe, or just want to share some thoughts. Live lets you bring your friends and family right next to you to experience what’s happening together.”Image credit: FacebookRelated: 3 Essentials for Making a Facebook Video That Gets People to BuyInitially,  Facebook says only a “small percent” of its users in the U.S. will be able to test out the feature, simply called Live Video. For now, it’s only available via Facebook’s iOS app. An Android version of it is slated for release early next year.If you’re one of the lucky people who see the feature within your Facebook iPhone app, all you have to do is select the Live Video icon to start streaming. Don’t forget to specify who gets to watch your real-time broadcast — your friends or the public. Once the stream ends, your video will live on your timeline.Facebook’s latest foray into video highlights its ability to adapt to the fast evolving media consumption landscape. The company already racks up some 8 billion traditional video views per day. It will be interesting to see how its streaming video numbers shake out. With more than 1 billion people active on Facebook the world over, it can’t go wrong.Image credit: FacebookRelated: How Brands Are Paving the Way for Periscope Marketingcenter_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more

New Zealand business tourism rising

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P The most recent statistics show an increase in New Zealand’s popularity as a destination for conference and incentive groups from the Australian market.The figures show a 38 percent increase for 2011 in Australian travellers compared to that of the previous year.Further to this, February 2011 has seen a 55 percent increase alone, in Australian delegates visiting for conferences and incentives when compared to February 2010.“Our business tourism industry is performing very strongly at the moment and that’s reflected in these figures,” said Conventions and Incentives New Zealand chief executive Alan Trotter.New Zealand’s close proximity to Australia and the current strength of the Australian dollar means Australians can get “much more bang for their buck,” Mr Trotter said.The annual business tourism expo meeting will be held in Rotorua next month, to promote the industry’s services and facilities to overseas conference organisers.last_img read more

Lawmakers New state education board LGBTQ policy erodes parental rights

first_img Concerned parents, public must be able to stop potential changesA group of House lawmakers today condemned a draft policy initiative by the Michigan State Board of Education that could allow students to use any school restroom they choose and allow male students to try out for girls’ sports teams, all while keeping parents in the dark about their children’s everyday activities.“As the parent of a 15-year-old daughter I am outraged at the Michigan Board of Education. This policy is evidence of a government bureaucracy run amok and goes well beyond their scope of educating our children,” said Rep. Lana Theis, R-Brighton. “The board has no business trying to take away parental rights, and this ill-conceived policy would put the health and safety of our children at risk.”Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, said: “This outrageous policy forcing K-12 girls to share their bathrooms, locker rooms, or showers with boys—and hide that bizarre, radical practice from parents—not only violates parental rights but threatens the privacy, security, and comfort of our public school students.“The state board should drop such attempts at radical left-wing schemes and focus its resources and staff time on actually educating students.”The Michigan Board of Education has proposed a State Board of Education “Statement and Guidance on Safe and Supportive Learning Environments for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Students” that the board is expected to vote on at its May 10 meeting. Public comments are being accepted on the proposal through Monday, April 11.“We strongly encourage all parents and residents of Michigan take time to submit their thoughts to the state board for review,” said Rep. Theis. “It is imperative for parents to let the board know this policy is unacceptable and encourage the board members to reject the proposal.”The board proposes six additional recommendations for schools, which include:Recognizing students by chosen names and corresponding pronouns;Using chosen names on unofficial student records, such as class/team rosters, yearbook and school newspapers/newsletters;Using case-by-case determinations for locker room options;Ensuring school dress codes are gender-neutral without restrictions based on gender identity; andEvaluating all gender-based programs and maintaining only those with clear educational purposes.“As a parent and former foster parent I am committed to protecting my teenage daughter’s safety and privacy,” said Rep. Jim Runestad, R-White Lake. “For safety purposes in public bathrooms, gender should be clearly defined as biological. These considerations are not relevant to career preparation and should not interfere with other children’s privacy rights.”State Rep. Thomas Hooker said: “The American College of Pediatricians recently said that, ‘Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.’ I, for one, want the MDE’s budget zeroed out until this guidance policy is revoked and an apology issued.”The public can read the draft guidance policy and provide public comment online at the SBE website, www.everyvoicecountsmi.org, or fax public comments to 517-373-1233.Questions and concerns also can be sent to individual legislators at:Lana Theis, 42nd District, LanaTheis@house.mi.govThomas Hooker, 77th District, ThomasHooker@house.mi.govGary Glenn, 98th District, GaryGlenn@house.mi.govJim Runestad, 44th District, JimRunestad@house.mi.govLee Chatfield, 107th District, LeeChatfield@house.mi.govRay Franz, 101st District, RayFranz@house.mi.gov##### Categories: Theis News 23Mar Lawmakers: New state education board LGBTQ policy erodes parental rightslast_img read more

Justins note Beyond Meat BYND is soaring The

first_imgJustin’s note: Beyond Meat (BYND) is soaring.The plant-based meat producer is up around 500% since the company went public in May. The company is now worth over $9 billion, and is trading at more than 80 times its trailing 12-month sales.That’s an absurd valuation. But many believe the stock could keep running. That’s because the company is supposed to radically change how people eat.Personally, I think BYND’s a bubble that will pop any day now. But I was interested in the big trend here of plant-based meat. So, I got Doug Casey on the phone to see what he thinks about BYND and the future of food…Justin: Doug, there’s a lot of hype around Beyond Meat right now, and for good reason.Its stock is up around 500% since the company went public in May. Not only that, Whole Foods’ CEO recently described Beyond Meat as the future of food, saying, “You have a business here that is real and that is in the early innings.”Do you buy that? Is plant-based meat really the future?Doug: This trend – and I think it is a trend – has been predicted for some time. When I was in high school, Mr. Blue by Myles Connolly was a popular book for a while. I just looked it up – it was written in 1928. It’s been a long time since I read it, but if my memory serves, among other things it posited that people and machines would both run on the same fuel, a petroleum derivative, in a dystopian future. It’s not an unreasonable prediction. Because although there are 92 naturally occurring elements most food consists of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen. These elements basically compose all carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Plus traces of others like iron, copper, and sulfur.Fabricating “food,” or at least something that can fuel the body’s cells, is just practical chemistry. As technology improves it will be possible to create all sorts of foods that look and taste like the real thing. Perhaps better. Science fiction has always been the best predictor of the future, and I have no doubt that “replicators,” like those on Star Trek, will create food. 3-D printing is a major step in that direction.Right now it’s still at the stage of using plants to transform raw materials into something that tastes like meat. The next question is not just whether we can cut out animals, which transform plants. But cut out the plants, which transform raw chemical compounds. It’s only logical that this trend will accelerate. The question is whether the foods are also economic and tasty. Let’s hope it goes in that direction, rather than towards Soylent Green – which is rather unaesthetic. The creation of foods out of various stages of raw material has lots of implications on political and sociological – not to mention philosophical – levels. But we’re mainly interested on how to turn a buck here…As far as making money is concerned, I don’t like to invest in science projects. There’s just too much research and development (R&D), experimentation, and uncertainty – it might even be riskier than mining exploration, which is saying something. In addition, projects like this tend to be cultural problems. And it takes generations to change cultures. So, I wouldn’t touch Beyond Meat’s stock with a cattle prod at the moment.Justin: Why do you think its stock is up so much then?Doug: Well, since I haven’t personally tried any of their products, I can’t comment on their taste or cost. When I do, perhaps I’ll change my opinion. I have no doubt that as the tech improves – which it will – both will get better. But there’s plenty of time to get involved – when other companies are out there, and there’s not a speculative bubble.I think the stock’s gone up because interest rates are near record lows and the Federal Reserve is printing money. All that money has got to go somewhere. It’s just part of the great financial bubble. And it’s generally a bad idea to chase after every fashionable idea. Especially late in a bubble.As far as artificial meat itself is concerned, the Chinese have made many great meat substitutes from mushrooms, soy, and wheat for many decades. When I used to live in Hong Kong, one of my favorite restaurants specialized in Buddhist vegetarian dishes. The menu had lots of pork and beef taste-alikes that were extremely appetizing. I certainly didn’t feel the need for real meat when I ate there. But those products never really made it in the U.S.But I don’t doubt “faux flesh” is a growing trend.Justin: What about the green movement? I imagine eco-conscious millennials have played a huge role in bidding up Beyond Meat’s stock.Doug: This is absolutely part of the green movement. A lot of it is based on people being made to feel guilty for even existing, not to mention eating animals.I understand the ethical argument. I don’t like killing other creatures. I feel somewhat sheepish going to a store and buying meat products that someone else has killed, despite the fact it’s just a question of specialization and division of labor. It’s certainly more authentic to eat what you’ve actually hunted and killed yourself. But that’s impractical in today’s world.This is mostly a matter of economics. Most food is based on corn, soybeans, wheat, and rice. All these commodity groups are grown in gigantic monocultures that cover hundreds of thousands of square miles. Any large artificial monoculture is an accident waiting to happen.The day of the self-sustaining family farm, like the one Joel Salatin runs and writes about, is done. At least for 98% of humanity. I’m not a dedicated farmer like Joel. But I can tell you that at current prices it’s somewhere between hard and impossible to make money growing food at today’s prices.My main objection to faux foods is personal, and aesthetic. I don’t like the idea of eating manufactured or industrial foods. But perhaps that’s just because I have enough money to allow me to eat whatever I want. Those big four grains are for feeding the masses. Humans didn’t eat that kind of food for the first 99% of our existence.That sounds elitist, I know. Which is a bit of a contradiction, because it’s well-known I generally despise today’s “elite.” But, on the other hand, every human who’s not a useless mouth should strive to become elite. It’s just a question of how we define that word. And what you do to become elite. Just being no more than a carbon-based life form that has to be fed doesn’t cut it.If you’re at a certain economic level – as I presume anyone reading this is – you’re not directly affected by whether the corn crop fails, or wheat goes back to $10 a bushel. That’s largely a problem for Third World countries with socialist governments, places where they can’t produce anything but more poor people. But, in that context I’ve got to point out that all the foods, not just wheat, corn, and soybeans, but also cattle, sugar, coffee and orange juice, are at just about historic lows. So, now is the time to get into these things from a speculative point of view.It’s very dangerous to grow anything in a gigantic monoculture. There are viruses, bacteria, insects, and other pests that can wipe out these crops wholesale. The Chinese are dealing with that now with their hog crop; an African swine fever breakout has wiped out 20% to 30% of the hogs in China. Closer to home, flooding in the Midwest has devastated this year’s corn, wheat, and soybean harvests. At the same time that most of the world’s crops have been engineered to be grown using the pesticide glyphosate (RoundUp), there are huge lawsuits being won that could ban its use. It’s accused – quite possibly correctly – as being a dangerous carcinogen. “Roundup Ready” crops don’t do well, however, without RoundUp.I say that with the understanding that productivity of all foods has been going up for many years. Farmers produce two to three times per acre more than they did just fifty years ago. I’m sure, for many reasons not germane to this short discussion, that trend is going to continue. Always remember that the longest bear market in history is commodities. In real terms they’ve been collapsing in price for roughly 10,000 years – punctuated by explosive rallies, usually caused by either natural disasters like flood or drought, or anthropogenic ones, like war and collectivism.My guess is that we’re at the bottom for commodity prices here. Unless we have a credit collapse, there will be fortunes made in the next couple of years. People who feel guilty about profiting from higher food prices simply have no understanding of basic economics. A proper speculator is a humanitarian in disguise. Why? By buying things when there’s a surplus, and prices are cheap, he’s in a position to make them available to the less prudent when there’s a shortage.Now’s an excellent time to speculate on these commodity type foods at these prices.Justin: Aside from plant-based meat, what other developments in the food industry should we expect? I recently read that insect-based foods might be needed to deal with overpopulation. What do you think?Doug: First of all, it’s too bad that most meat today is produced in an industrial manner. The conditions under which cattle, hogs, and chickens are produced are absolutely disgusting. The animals are full of steroids and antibiotics. And they’re often fed what amounts to cardboard. The entire process is very unaesthetic. I avoid industrial meat, milk, and eggs whenever possible. There’s a lot of truth to the saying “you are what you eat”, and nobody needs more steroids and antibiotics.But I’m not worried about the growing population. The population all over the world is actually dropping, particularly in North America, Europe, and Japan. And that’s not likely to change. It’s actually likely to accelerate. It’s even happening in China, the Middle East, and South America.The only place where population is growing is in Africa. Africans can’t feed themselves as it stands. They certainly won’t be able to if their population triples by the end of this century. Unless the continent completely reforms its political and economic systems, it’s in trouble. The whole continent is a welfare case, sucking capital out of the rest of the world.Contrary to most projections, however, I believe the population of Africa could collapse at some point – not for the reasons populations are declining in the developed world, but because they don’t produce anything. Africa doesn’t have the infrastructure, the capital base, or the political/economic environment to change that in the near term. The Central African Republic is much closer to reality than the country of Wakanda portrayed in the movie Black Panther. Anyway, they’re not competing with us for expensive foods like meat and fish. They’re competitors for subsistence foods.As for grubs and insects I’ve tried many of them when I was living in Thailand and Hong Kong. They can be very tasty. But, even there, they’re a specialty item. When they’re bred in meaningful quantities, however, they’ll be ground into mulch. Then they won’t be a delicacy for rich people, but subsistence protein for poor people. In any event, not a consideration for many years to come.Here’s the bottom line. It’s time to get long commodities.Justin: Great stuff. Thanks, Doug.Doug: You’re welcome.Justin’s note: As Doug said, now is a great time to bet on commodities.Our in-house commodities expert Dave Forest agrees. He says we’re entering the next “supercycle”… and smart investors stand to make a fortune.And just like Doug and I talked about today, he sees agriculture stocks specifically as one of the top ways to take advantage.The best part is, Dave just found the perfect way to profit. He just wrote about it in the latest issue of International Speculator, which subscribers can access here.If you’re not a subscriber, you can learn more, including another massive opportunity on Dave’s radar, by clicking here.last_img read more
